This Hotel is garbage....I would never recommend!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 28, 2011

This hotel came complete with cockroaches, spider and ants in the bathroom. The beds had dirty linens, and smelled of urine! The front desk manager was rude...his name is Jorge Santos, I believe. The food was overcooked and the staff was extremely rude. The restaurant was always empty, I figure this is because the food and staff was just so horrible, no one in their right mind would even consider eating in that place. The breakfast buffet was unadequate and very undesirable, the juice was warm, fruit was old, meat was left out, eaggs were soggy, and the tables were dirty!

The lights in our room didnt work and after numerous calls to the front desk we still had no response. We had to use the bathroom in the dark. I suppose it was a blessing, because once the lights were fixed, we saw how horribly dirty it was. The figobar was not cold and was indeed not stocked appropriately. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. I will surely never consider this hotel for any further visits to Brazil.

As a side note, the manager was so rude and impolite about absolutely any problems, as if the problems were not his worry. This manager made the stay that much more imbearable.

Unique Quality: Nothing positive to say!

GOT ROBBED...on our first day.... NOT RECOMMENDED.

by written on July 22, 2010

At our first day at the hotel we asked to rent the lock for the safe which is located inside the closet.... We asked the cleaning lady how to go about getting the lock and key she directed us to the front desk. Both guys at the front desk helped us getting the key. These three individuals were the only ones aware of us having the need for a safe. Well they must have thought we had a lot of money inside it, because when we got back from a long day at the Christ the whole safe had been yanked out of the wall. We called the police, which came quickly but there was nothing they could do, the hotel does not have any video recording as the cameras in the common areas are for display only, and all of the Managers in-charge of the hotel did not show any interest in trying to find out or at least interview the only 3 people in Rio de Janeiro that new we needed a safe..... BTW: nothing else was taken from the room, they left 2 laptops, ipods & electronics, the only other thing they took was the backpack I guess to be able to carry out the safe unsuspected. Also, there were no signs of force entry.... the only keys that were used at the front door were ours and the cleaning lady..... Unbelievable.... days wasted getting new passports and everything else. We still had to pay for our stay. Pay more and dont deal with this type of horrible headache.

I stayed in the Hotel...

by written on August 24, 2002

I stayed in the Hotel Bandeirantes Othon, in the Copacabana area. I did not get a hotel facing the beach in Copacabana, they are more expensive, and probably just as good.

Unique Quality: It was reasonable, comfortable and clean. With Color TV, your own private bathroom, Restaurant and Bar.

Directions: Hotel Bandereiantes Othon, is located at Rua Barata Ribeiro, 548. Rio de Janeiro.
